I survived re-entry into the world of work with minimal scars, thanks for asking. The horrific event I expected to occur while I was out didn’t, while the horrific event I thought would happen next month happened while I was out. Go figure. And there were only a couple of truly horrific events today. So far, so good.
One of today’s horrific events was actually kinda funny . . . in spots. I had a voicemail from an irate woman who was screaming into the phone, saying she was filing a complaint against my agency, and threatening me with dire results if I didn’t return her call. At the end of her message, after cursing me six ways to Sunday she said “and have a blessed day.”
Such phone calls are not the norm here at Insanity Central, by the way. Thankfully.
There were lots of great suggestions in the comments yesterday for both Norgi gloves and colorwork hats. If you are in the market for either of these types of projects, do have a look there.
I’ve finished the back — see?
I had some difficulty photographing this.
See what I mean?
In the end, I gave up.
I’m working on the front.
Hmmmm, interesting observation about using the Iro. I wonder what Transitions will do? I might need to order more yarn since I haven’t a clue how to do standard v-neck stuff and I don’t want a tray.
Phyl, I believe Transitions is a bit softer than Iro, so you may get the drape you want if you make the u-neck. I dunno . . .
I believe I’m okay on yarn amounts with what I bought. I used slightly less that one-fourth of the yarn I bought to make the back. And I don’t think the v-neck will take more yarn than the u-neck, particularly since I’m not going to do 6 inches of ribbing and fold it over — I’ll probably end up with 2 inches of ribbing. And I’ll be happy to share my pattern mods for the v-neck with you.
Speaking of which, I’m at the point where I will divide for the v-neck. I know. Please try to contain your excitement.
While I’m at it, I might make long sleeves rather than three-quarter length sleeves. We’ll see.
So by the time I’m done, my Kolsva will bear little resemblence to the original pattern.
Maybe I should rename it Coleslaw, huh?
